Art is obviously beyond drawing, it’s the act of creation. While some artist and art enthusiasts draw with acrylic paints, spray paints, oil paints, watercolor paint, Gouache paint and Encaustics paint, some others create art from recyclable waste. Some of these recyclables might include newspaper, metals, aluminum, plastic objects, wood and several other things. While some of these artists create for the fun of it, some create as a means of contributing to the sustainable environment and some others create to pass a message across.
